  • Hi, I'm Vanessa from SpeakEnglishWithVanessa.com.

  • Today we're going to talk about how to pronounce the 100 most important words in English.

  • Let's get started.

  • Before we get started I wanna let you know that these are not the top 100 most used words

  • in English.

  • These are the most important words.

  • There is a man named IA Richards, he was a rhetorician, which means it was his job to

  • be a speaker, be eloquent.

  • He is a professor of words we could say.

  • He decided that these 100 words were the most important in the English language for two

  • reasons.

  • Let's talk about the first one.

  • The first reason is because they cover topics that we often talk about.

  • They're probably the most used topics.

  • A lot of these words are nouns or verbs.

  • They're descriptive.

  • They're not prepositions.

  • If you are interested in the most common words in the English language, those are going to

  • be more prepositions or articles like the, have, an, but these are important words, so

  • they're going to be descriptive.

  • We talk about these topics often.

  • The second reason is because we need to use these words when we're describing other concepts,

  • so if you don't know a word in English and you're trying to describe what that word is,

  • you're going to need to use these words to describe other concepts.

  • As you can see, they're really valuable.

  • They're invaluable, in fact.

  • Take today to pronounce them correctly.

  • Follow my speaking.

  • Follow my pronunciation.

  • I'm an American, so I'm going to use American English pronunciation.

  • I hope it will be useful to you.

  • Are you ready to get started?

  • Use those muscles.

  • I'm going to pronounce them first clearly, and then second, I'm going to say a short

  • sentence which is going to use them pretty fast.

  • You're going to hear the version that you would hear in a conversation, so maybe some

  • letters are reduced or linked or cut out.

  • You might hear a difference between the two, but I want to make sure that you can hear

  • the clear pronunciation and also the sentence, daily conversation style, pronunciation.
